If you read my post from yesterday, I bought very little yarn. If you've read this blog for any length of time, you will know I love to knit socks and collect sock yarn. With that in mind let me step up on my soap box......
When I was in Michael's, I noticed they had some Kroy sock yarn on sale. Can I tell you they had some of the ugliest colors?!!? I think they had abt 9 different colorways, 6 of which were self striping. I wish I had my camera because these were some really sad looking colors. They did have plain cream, grey and black which is good if you wanted to make some plain socks or if you like to change up the heels and toes, but I had NO desire to buy any of it. That being said, I'm happy to see that at least some sock yarn is being sold in the store. However, this yarn needs to be knit with either a size 1 or *maybe* a size 2 needle. What was the smallest needle size they sold in the store? A size 3. Why sell the books and yarn if you don't carry all the supplies to make the item?
Joann's carries the smaller needles, but their supply of sock yarn was even smaller. This is why so many people still go to their LYSs or on line to purchase their supplies. With such a small attempt at sock yarn, its no wonder why it doesn't fly off the shelves.
Thank you for your time (stepping off soap box now).
